A further search for a rectangle, whose approximate position was determined from the previous steps, results in the door handle being identified (Figure 10). Optionally, a more accurate model of the door handle can then be initialized. 1 second. The search would be far less efficient were we to begin, for example, by examining the entire image for edge-rich regions. Edge detection is expensive, and in our environment, there may be more edgerich objects than there are yellow objects at waist height.

By H. Bruyninckx and J. De Schutter discusses the role of "Task Frame" as the central modeling, specification, sensor processing and control concept in the hybrid control paradigm for robot manipulators in contact with its environment. In a previous paper, the authors have tried to formalize Mason's original intuitive ideas of task frame in four rules: geometric compatibility, causal compatibility, time-invariance, and maximal decoupling. These rules cover the "classical" compliant motion tasks, but not tasks in more complex contact situations.
